Honda continues the new introductions to its 2015 motorcycle line with announcement of several cruiser, touring and dual-sport models. The 2015 model year marks the 40th anniversary of the Gold Wing® and are celebrating with a commemorative 40th Anniversary Edition. Other new introductions include the return of popular and iconic motorcycles from the 1300 Custom and Shadow lines, as well as the Fury and do-it-all XR650L.
“For 2015 we are proud to be celebrating 40 years of the Gold Wing. This model means so much to our company and our customers,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. “When this model was introduced in 1975 it revolutionized what touring in America could be. It was our customers’ passion for adventure and traveling the open road that really defined the Gold Wing and how it is used today.”
40 YEAR GOLD WING HERITAGE
The bike that started it all, the Honda Gold Wing maintains its legacy as the original touring motorcycle, with the commemorative 2015 GL1800 40th Anniversary Edition Gold Wing. And the 2015 Gold Wing F6B delivers nimble performance and now offers cruise control. All 2015 Gold Wing models feature unique 40th Anniversary emblems.
The 2015 Gold Wing is offered in a striking two-tone Candy Red and Black color marked with unique adornments as a special 40th anniversary edition. The world’s best touring motorcycle equips riders with a luxurious, powerful, balanced and fully featured machine ready for every journey. Its six-cylinder 1832cc powerplant is highly efficient and reliable, allowing riders and passengers to focus on the accommodations, like an audio system with iPod® connectivity, and the available navigation system. The Gold Wing is available in four distinct performance package options, so customers can choose the features they want.

GOLD WING F6B
The Gold Wing F6B rewrote the rules for touring, injecting more performance and excitement into Honda’s GL line and creating a new breed of Gold Wing riders. For 2015, the F6B makes logging miles easier with the addition of cruise control and also adds more aggressive styling with the addition of a black exhaust. The F6B features the powerful namesake flat six engine yet is lighter, higher performing and has a more sporty appearance from its lower windscreen and svelte bodywork. Yet despite the trimmed-down appearance, the F6B offers the comfort and luxury of a Gold Wing.
